The Valuation Tribunal Service (VTS) is a statutory, non-departmental public body (NDPB), sponsored by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), with responsibility for the administration of Council Tax and Non-Domestic Rating appeals.  What we do and how we do it has an impact on the multi-million-pound income the Government brings in from local property taxation to support other public services.     

The Role:

This job offers great exposure to a range of finance related work within a small but busy finance team in the VTS Head Office.  You will report to our Finance Director and on a day-to-day basis you will be responsible for managing the financial reporting and budgeting team.

  • managing the production of management accounts and financial information for internal and external stakeholders. 
  • providing financial analysis and business advice to senior management and non-financial stakeholders 

About You: 

  • Our ideal candidate would be someone with the ability to lead a small finance team as well as business partner with non-finance stakeholders.
  • Knowledge of the work involved in central government financing and specifically within an NDPB would be a positive advantage.
  • To perform successfully in the role you will need to be someone who is proactive, organised and who works well with a range of different stakeholders across different functions. You will be advising them on financial accounting, management accounting, systems development and making a contribution to range of ad-hoc finance and corporate projects.
